This three-day course is intended primarily for IT Professionals who already have significant experience with managing an on-premises Windows Server environment. Its purpose is to cover advanced topics related to Windows Server software-defined datacenter, Azure Stack HCI learning, and other Azure Stack products. The course also describes the use of existing Microsoft System Center products to implement and manage software-defined datacenters with Windows Server 2019. This course is advanced and is designed for people that want to run their virtual workloads on Windows Server 2019 at a medium-to-large scale using software-defined datacenter and hyper-converged principles.
Intermediate experience with managing Windows Server operating systems and Windows Server virtualized workloads in on-premises scenarios
Intermediate experience with common Windows Server management tools (implied by the first prerequisite)
Intermediate knowledge of core Microsoft compute, storage, networking, and virtualization technologies
Intermediate knowledge of Windows Server-based compute and storage high-availability technologies
Basic experience with implementing and managing Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) services in Microsoft Azure
Basic knowledge of Azure Active Directory (Azure AD)
Intermediate knowledge of Microsoft virtualization security-related technologies
Intermediate knowledge of PowerShell scripting and PowerShell Desired State Configuration (DSC)
This course is for IT professionals who manage on-premises Windows Server environments and want to use Azure to manage server workloads and run their virtual workloads on Windows Server 2019. They also want to use existing Microsoft System Center products to implement and manage software-defined datacenters with Windows Server 2019.
